Microsoft inks MOU to help progress NSW Govt digital transformation Featured

By

The digital transformation of government in NSW has received a major boost with the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Microsoft and the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation aimed at progressing digital transformation across NSW Government.

DFSI secretary Martin Hoffman said, “Having the invaluable support of Microsoft’s experts will greatly accelerate the government’s digital journey.

“This includes greater collaboration on building a data-centric approach to good government, important cyber, platform and capability development initiatives.”

The announcement coincides with the opening of the Microsoft Technology Centre in Sydney.

“NSW is already benefitting from the impact of digital transformation in terms of streamlined services and access for residents and businesses,” Hoffman said.

“This MoU will allow us to bring department heads to the MTC where they can see what more can be achieved with digital services, improved efficiencies and good value solutions.

“We expect there will be significant positive impact for citizens and businesses as well as operational efficiencies for Government.”

The NSW Government released its digital strategy in 2017, outlining a vision and roadmap for transformation.
